St. Louis: Sr. Assumpta's Jubilee!

August 23:
We had a special Mass and dinner at our bookcenter for Sr. Assumpta's fiftieth anniversary of religious profession. One hundred people -- and seven priests! -- came to celebrate with us! We moved all the shelves of books into one corner, and set up chairs for Mass and tables for dinner. Many people helped us to prepare the bookcenter, the Mass, and the food. It was a wonderful celebration, and we really saw how people love our community and love Sr. Assumpta!
